Taipans record biggest ever win over Melbourne

11:47 am on 12 December 2009

The Cairns Taipans have recorded their biggest-ever win over the Melbourne Tigers in the Australian National Basketball League.

The 89-74 win in Cairns leaves the Taipans seventh with a seven win 11 loss record, one place ahead of the New Zealand Breakers, who lost at home to the leaders Perth on Thursday night.

The Tigers are last in the eight-team league with four wins and nine losses and their finals hopes will be all but over if they lose to Townsville in their next game.
